What Is Wood-lookTile?
Wood-look ceramic or porcelain tile is made from fired clay and designed to mimic the grain, finishes and plank sizes of hardwood flooring.
Advantages of Wood-look Ceramic and Porcelain Tile Flooring
- Tile is tough and can hold its own with kids and pets in the house.
- Tile comes in a wide variety of colors, textures and sizes–including planks for a true wood-floor look.
- Tile floors work well in damp areas such as entries, kitchens, mudrooms, bathrooms and basements.
- You can even use tile on a wall as a focal point for a room.
- Tile is easy to care for—sop up spills with a towel and mop with soapy water—no special cleaners needed.
- Consider colored grout for even more design options. Tile floors take on different looks depending on whether you use dark or light grout.
Tile and Your Budget
- Tile is a great home investment. Think resale value!
- Choose ceramic for value; go with porcelain for more durability.
- Hire an installer, or do it yourself to save money.
